Being a Helpful Book Blogger.

I am always keen to hear from authors and love to help out when it comes to publishing a new book. In this day and age, I really do think authors need all the help they can get to help get their book out there in the public eye. You never know when you might need a similar favour in return. So with this in mind, I was really keen to help Fiona Robyn.

Fiona Robyn is going to blog her next novel, Thaw, starting on the 1st of March next year. The novel follows 32 year old Ruth’s diary over three months as she decides whether or not to carry on living.

To help spread the word she’s organising a Blogsplash, where blogs will publish the first page of Ruth’s diary simultaneously (and a link to the blog).

She’s aiming to get 1000 blogs involved – if you’d be interested in joining the splash, email her at or find out more information here.


  1. Sorry Vivienne, that was me pressing the wrong button and deleting my comment.
    Where was I? I've never heard of an author doing this before but what an exciting idea, a great way to advertise yourself.
    During BBAW I wad writing about wanting to do an author interview - perhaps now I'll have the oppurtunity. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

  2. Great idea, and good way to help spread the word :D

  3. Now thats an interesting way to promote a book. Will keep check on her blog next year. Thanks for the heads up on this! =)

  4. Thanks for the heads-up Viv, I'm going to check out the link for more info!

  5. Great idea:) I will check it out!

  6. That is a great idea and definitely something I would like to look into.
